#960 of 1712 June 2008 Lease deals on 2008 FX35
Jun 27, 2008 (9:29 pm)
If anyone is considering leasing a 2008 FX35 my opinion is that now is a very good time. I need to do the calculations to figure out my exact cap cost, but I figure it was about $38,500 on a 2008 FX35 with Premium, tech, Ipod, xrails, splash, and cargo. The MSRP was $43,020. I took advantage of a $2k cash back for previous Infiiniti owners/leasers, which was deducted from my cap cost (i.e. $38,5- $2). Overall this represented a very good deal vs the competition, which in my estimation were the 09 Murano and the 08 RDX. All in all I feel like the value for the $ was much greater with Infiniti than with Nissan or Acura. (Acura had good lease rates if you wanted to drive a mom car with a 4c engine but nice luxury features, and Nissan had terrible rates for an SUV that is a great product with a ho-hum/everyday reputation that everyone else is driving).
Mf was 0.00095, residual was 66% on a 24/12 lease. If anyone in Chicagoland is looking for one of these let me know, I'll tell you who is dealing. If you check dealer inventory it's pretty obvious.

Carman or kyfdx
My lease is almost up on my 2006 FX 35 and I am going to lease a 2009 FX 35. What is the money factor and residual percentage for a 39 and 24 month lease?
Love this site. Thanks for your help.

While I don't know the answer to your question, I do know that as of a few days ago there's a $2000 factory to dealer incentive on the 09 FX35. One of the guys I was dealing with told me it came in the night before I made my deal. It was still going to cost a lot more for the 09 than the 08 tho'.

Ingvar- Lisle and Glencoe are both willing to make deals on this car. I suspect that Barrington will too, but they didn't send me a quote after I requested it. I think they didn't want to deal with me, would rather wait for a fish to come in.

Just returned from negotiating for a 2009 Fx35 loaded. Walked from the deal as the residual factor for 24 months was .61 and for 39 months was 0.49. I understand that the motivation to negotiate on a brand new model yr is low - but hey Nissan just took a 21% drop in sales as has nearly every other car manufacturer. This residual is crap.

Thanks for the residuals. How many miles were in your pricing and do you remember the money factor?

15 K miles and I am unsure of the exact money factor. They were VERY unwilling to move off of the sticker price. Another dealer stated that it would take 1-3 months for the dealers to want to move off of the MSRP - but definitely not 6 months.
#968 of 1712 08 FX 35 Lease Deal
Jul 07, 2008 (1:00 pm)
I have been looking into leasing an 08 FX 35 AWD with the hands free and touring package. A local area dealer made this offer: $8000 off msrp, 10m miles per year 36 month lease $690 per month with nothing out of pocket. Sounds to high to me considering msrp less the 8,000. What are your thoughts? I also just got off the phone with him and was reading him some of the deals I see on this site. He was blown away. Is this guy smoking something or what??

That $690 number is WAY too high. I don't think the $3000 support applies to leases, so perhaps he's not really talking $8000 off MSRP.
Calculating the amount of a monthly car lease payment is very easy, just look it up on the web. Don't forget to add sales taxes and other fees into the cap cost. You should not be talking monthly payments until you negotiate cap costs. Then you figure out what the captive lease rates are (i.e. the money factor and residuals offered by Infiniti Leasing Corp) and the math follows from there. Good luck.
